Quote by Christopher Hitchens
It is interesting to find that people of faith now seek defensively to say that they are no worse than Nazis or Stalinists.
This quote suggests that some people who identify as religious are trying to justify their beliefs by comparing themselves to infamous figures such as Nazis and Stalinists. The statement highlights the irony in this defensive stance, as it implies that being on par with historically notorious figures is somehow acceptable or desirable. It implies a concern or observation about the lengths to which people may go to defend their faith or ideology, using comparisons that are generally associated with moral reprehensibility.
